GOOGLE'S NEXUS 7 TABLET hasn't got off to the best start, as following delivery issues users have begun complaining about problems with the tablet's screen.

Google Nexus 7Owners of the recently released tablet have flocked to online forums to grumble about Nexus 7 screen problems. Users reportedly have been suffering from dead pixels on the screen and displays that haven't been glued into the chassis correctly.

One user moans, "I purchased 2 Nexus 7s at GS yesterday. Both of them had dead pixels, 4 and 7. In addition, on both of them, the glass is elevated about 1mm on the left side. I don't know if you guys will notice, but the left side of the screen is 'spongier?' than the right side, which seems well-supported.

"I can push down the left side, and the adhesive takes hold for about 10 minutes or so, but eventually, the glass lifts up again."

While users have been able to rectify the loose display issue by tightening the screws, others have cracked the tablet's screen - so we don't recommend trying a do it yourself fix.

The INQUIRER's Google Nexus 7 didn't seem to suffer from these problems, so the problems might be isolated to a handful of unlucky customers. µ
